The Memphis chapter invites all TOS members to the Spring Meeting, to be held May 6, 7 and 8, 2016 at Reelfoot Lake State Park. Ellington Hall has been reserved for meeting registration and a Friday night reception, as well as committee meetings, board of directors’ meeting and dinner on Saturday night.
Field trips on Saturday will depart from the state park visitor’s center and explore local hotspots including Walnut Log Road, the main unit of Black Bayou, the Phillipy pits area and Mississippi levee. Depending on water levels, Long Point and Lake Isom may be included. Field trips on Sunday will be contingent upon what we find on Saturday.
Saturday night’s dinner will be catered by Blue Bank Fish House and Grill. Dinner cost is $20 per adult and $10 for children. For the Saturday evening dinner program we will learn all about the Greater Prairie Chicken restoration project in our sister state of Missouri from Wildlife Biologist Matt Hill.
Depending on the weather, Reelfoot State Park will offer canoe trips on Saturday morning and pontoon boat rides on Saturday afternoon. Cost is $10 per person for each morning and afternoon option. This fee should be paid to Reelfoot State Park on the day of the trip.
